British Musical Theatre   The Girl from Utah

The Arcadians is an Edwardian musical comedy styled a "Fantastic Musical Play" in three acts with a book by Mark Ambient and Alexander M. Thompson, lyrics by Arthur Wimperis, and music by Lionel Monckton and Howard Talbot. It was first produced at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, on 29 April 1909, and ran for 809 performances.

The story concerns some idyllic Arcadians who wish to transform wicked London to a land of truth and simplicity.
